By a GenomeWeb staff reporter

NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Atlas Biolabs today said that it has licensed the Cartagenia Bench software for analyzing genetic data obtained by DNA chip analysis.

The software processes DNA data from all common array systems including Affymetrix, Agilent, and Roche NimbleGen, said Berlin, Germany-based Atlas. The firm provides academic institutions and other customers with microarray and sequencing services.

"The advantages for our customers are obvious," Karsten Heidtke, head of bioinformatics at Atlas, said in a statement. "It provides them with an efficient evaluation system on which they can rely without having to establish their own bioinformatics resources."
